Andrew Robertson

The first film I saw in the cinema was "Michael Jackson's Moonwalker", but I got better.

I like: Animation, books, comics, dice, esoteric research papers, film, gourmandry & games, history, ink, "jokes", kitchenalia, lego, movies, notebooks, obscurities, picturehouses (and parentheses), quests, references*, short film, tea, ultracrepidarianism, vexatiousness, words, algebra, yakking, and zymurgy.

Oh, and * footnotes.
